A new addition to my collection, [Christmas Present 2018]. This Triang Ultra Modern No.50 has been completely overpainted in a lovely dark mustard colour, with red metal framed windows [they are fitted with real glass].
There is an entrance hall with a door leading into the ground floor room and a staircase. The staircase goes up onto the landing, with a door opening into the first floor room, and another door leading into a first floor sun lounge. There is also an internal garage.
I will need to make some new garage doors, as they are missing.
This metal and glass window is on the side of the house, the staircase can be seen through the window.
This view shows the first floor internal sun lounge.
This house is fitted with battery operated lights. The light bulbs fitted in bulb holders are linked by thin wire, and can be turned on and off, when the metal bar on the outside of the house completes the circuit. The power is provided by batteries stored in the roof space.
The little green front door with a letter box, a broken door knocker, and no door knob. [You will have to knock hard if you want to go in….]
You will notice that the door is bigger that the hole for the door, the door is mounted on a piece of wood [see picture below]. I have checked this is correct for this model of dollshouse.
The front opening panel is hinged on the wrong side. It is probably because the wood is damaged, but this can be sorted out, and the hinges mounted slightly lower than they were originally.
This is the bottom window, made up of three sections, attached with small nails.
Ground floor entrance, with the stairs going up to the first floor. I like the carpet on the staircase, but it is very worn.
Both rooms have original floor paper. The original Triang fireplace in this room has not touched, but the one on the ground floor has been overpainted with the same colour paint as the house.
The landing at the top of the stairs, with a view of the window. This house would not have had any wallpaper when new, so therefore none of the wallpaper is Triang.
The garage has original Triang brick patterned paper, but as you can see has a lot of paint on it.
This is the first floor sunlounge, with brick floor paper, as in the garage, it has paint splatters on it.
The Ultra Modern House has a sun roof, it should have a removable sun trap, but it is missing. I am planning to display my Triang Garden on the sun roof.
